In Character Posting Format

One thing I've found jarring in PbP games is the rampant changes in formating between some players' posts. It'd be really cool if we could keep it more or less to a standard (if someone really strongly disagrees, I'm all for open discussion on the matter). A format I've seen used to great effect is as follows:

Posting Format[FIELDSET="[img]small character portrait[/img]"]
[SIZE="3"][URL="Link to Character Sheet"]Character's[/URL][/SIZE] [SIZE="3"][URL="Link to Private Thread"]Name[/URL][/SIZE]

[In-character text and narrative]

[SPOILERBUTTON="Out of Character"]
[B][U]Status:[/U][/B]
HP: Current (+Temp HP) / Max HP
AC/Touch/FF: x/x/x
F/R/W: x/x/x
CMD: x

[B][U]Ongoing Effects:[/U][/B]
Buff, (rounds remaining / total rounds)
Buff, (hours remaining / total hours)
Debuff, (rounds remaining / total rounds)

[U][B]Actions:[/B][/U] [I]In whatever order they occur[/I]
Free:
Swift:
Move:
Standard:
Immediate: [I]Any immediate actions you might have and their triggering circumstances[/I]

[B][U]Rolls:[/U][/B]
Just Dice Code, always use [DICE="description of roll"][/DICE] instead of [DICE][/DICE]
[/SPOILERBUTTON][/FIELDSET]
Warning: rolls have been deleted from this post.

Here's how it should look in practice:


Joe Average

Sweat pours down Joe's forehead as he scrambles to his feet after REF save: 18narrowly avoiding the flame trap, his golden prize still clutched to his chest. A chittering barking erupts from behind him as the temple's occupants realize that their idol is gone. Catching sight of one of the demon-worshiping gnolls moving to cut of his escape, Joe drops the idol to the floor and circles around to find a clear shot. Slinging his shortbow off of his shoulder, Attack: 24
Damage: 10
he knocks an arrow and lets fly at the mangy hyena man. He knew how to deal with their kind.
